The 12-round series begins at Hangtown in May and ends at Indiana’s Ironman Raceway in August. It includes stops at the premier motocross racing facilities in America, with events in California, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Washington, New York, Maryland and Indiana.

AMA Pro Hillclimb
This unique form of motorsport, which dates to the early part of the 20th century, was immortalized in the late Bruce Brown’s On Any Sunday motorcycle documentary, has advanced quite a bit in the last two decades. The machinery being used in the Extreme and Unlimited classes is as radical as it comes – with 300-plus-horsepower, multi-cylinder nitro-burning engines and wildly extended swingarms offering up crazed rides to the top of these steep and jump-laden hills.
